Goat curry and Carib Premium Lager - yum! Even though I was there pretty early and it wasn't rimmed, Turtle Bay had a really cozy atmosphere. The staff were super friendly and the food was awesome. Highly recommended!

I don't really know anything about booking for that amount of people, but I sincerely think that it would be better to phone them, because the restaurant is bigger enough to have 19 persons.
